Governor Mitt Romney's love of Meat Loaf is well-documented; the singer joined him on stage to sing a rendition of "America the Beautiful" at a campaign stop in Defiance, Ohio. But did you know it's his favorite birthday treat, too?

His wife, Ann Romney, appeared on the Rachael Ray show to cook her signature "Meatloaf Cakes" and dish about the presidential hopeful's eating habits.

Kate Krader (@kkrader on Twitter) is Food & Wine's restaurant editor. When she tells us where to find our culinary heart's desire, we listen up.

As Election Day fever ramps up more and more each day, you might have gotten caught up in it. And, you might be asking yourself a few timely questions: How can I make my vote heard now (especially if I didn’t register for early voting)? How can I register my vote in more than one state? And how can I vote more than once?

The answer to all those questions, from a strictly legal perspective, is you can’t. However, if you want to cast your vote by choosing entrées at a few select restaurants in and around Washington, D.C., then it’s all good.

National sausage pizza day

While you're frying up some eggs and bacon, we're cooking up something else: a way to celebrate today's food holiday.

Meat lovers rejoice! October 11 is National Sausage Pizza Day.

Whether you prefer your crust as thick as The Oxford American English Dictionary or paper-thin, today, there is one important topic (or topping for that matter) we can all agree on: Sausage!

In fact, Pizza Hut thinks the meaty topping is so considerable, it needs to be discussed at the national level. The pizza chain is offering free pizza for life (read one large pizza a week for 30 years) to anyone who asks Mitt Romney and Barack Obama whether they prefer sausage or pepperoni on their pie during the town hall presidential debate on October 16.

Food in the Field gives a sneak peek into what CNN's team is eating, and the food culture they encounter as they travel the globe. Today's contributor, Senior Photojournalist Mark Walz covers the White House.

With the election only weeks away, we all have a choice to make. Some of us already know for whom we'll be pulling the lever, while others may still be on the fence.

Now there's another choice to make. Red State Bourbon or Blue State Bourbon. The first has a elephant on its label, the other, a donkey. Both bottles have the same hand-crafted bourbon whiskey inside, made in Bardstown, Kentucky.
